D. Woods On Danity Kane’s Reunion: ‘I Found Out On Twitter’

tumblr_lpnfjeNL3E1qesepao1_500

It looks like the girls of Danity Kane had a reunion party and forgot to invite D. Woods.

Last week, DK fans were super excited when girl group reunited for the first time in six years and started chatting about the possibility of a new album. The girls were spotted arriving at a restaurant together in LA, however, one person who was noticeably missing from the action was former Danity Kane member D. Woods. Unfortunately for her, she had to find out about the reunion on Twitter like the rest of us.

In a recent interview with Hot 107.5′s Bijou Star, she said that although she wasn’t informed about the reunion, if they were to approach her to make music with them again, she would definitely consider it. She also chatted about the rest of the girls being able to still use the name “Danity Kane” and what she’s currently working on.

Catch a few excerpts and listen to the interview below:

On the Danity Kane reunion
After seeing the pictures and the clip with the video, I saw that they were in Los Angeles. I’m not in Los Angeles so there goes the reason why I was not in the picture. I’m actually in Atlanta right now. I’m in pre-production rehearsal for the new musical ‘Rebirth’, so that’s what I’m currently doing.

On how she heard about the ‘Danity Kane’ reunion and whether she would consider joining the group again
I found out when my twitter timeline went off the chain.  We did go our separate ways in the fall of 2008. […] I’ve committed to projects and developing my own label, so I know right now, I can’t commit to splitting my focus on something like that. I don’t want to hold anyone back. If they feel like that’s what they want to do, and they want to do it right now, they’re going to do it. I mean you don’t have to wait for me. I’m going to support them as I’ve always supported them, and I hope they will support me.

On Aubrey saying, “Diddy Who?” when asked if Diddy approved of the reunion
I don’t know what they meant by it, so I can’t speak on it and how they feel about the man but you know things happen. I know when I parted from the group I said, ‘Thank you very much for the opportunity. You know I’ve always looked up to you as a business man, as a music mogul and maybe we will cross paths again in the future. This industry is just about the ones who keep doing it. So you’re going to see me again.’

On whether they can legally use the name Danity Kane
We as a group came up with the name. I’m not spiteful and I’m not going to try and get something that I didn’t put in work for, so if they are working on some new music, if they are doing some new stuff that I haven’t contributed to, that’s theirs. I got mine over here.

On whether she still talks to anyone from the group
You know what, we are just on different walks of life and we’re spread out all over the country. It’s hard to keep up with people. There’s no bad blood to where its like, ‘I just don’t want to talk to her.’

On whether she would like to rejoin the group
Where it makes sense in my schedule and the things that I have coming up, there’s a possibility. If it was brought to me, I would definitely consider it.  I’m definitely focused on the future. I’m really not trying to rehash the past. Just moving forward.

Can there be a Danity Kane reunion with no D. Woods?

Mase Signing With G.O.O.D Music?

Former Bad Boy artist turned Pastor Mason Betha may be next to join Kanye West, Pusha T, Big Sean and Teyana Taylor over at G.O.O.D Music.  The Summer Jam performer tweeted “WOW… I just got a G.O.O.D offer!!!” leading us to believe that he is the latest addition to Yeezy’s roster!

If so, it would be a great look for Mase who was recently released from his contract with Diddy!

Mase quickly deleted the tweet but not before our folks over at Rhymes With Switch were able to take a screen shot!

Shyne creates petition on White House page..

On The White House page, Shyne is seeking 25,000 signatures in hopes to consider granting the deported rapper a visa.

Rapper Shyne has been deported from the United States since October of 2009. It was at that time that the former Bad Boy Records sensation was released from Woodbourne Correctional Facility after eight-plus years served for two counts of assault, gun possession and other charges. The conviction stemmed from a 1999 New York City nightclub shooting where Shyne was with Bad Boy CEO Diddy and singer/actress Jennifer Lopez.

Since late 2009, Shyne has been living in his native Belize. During this time, Shyne signed a new contract with Def Jam Records, for a reported seven-figure contract. Last week, Shyne created a petition on the White House’s page, seeking a grant for a United States visa. The former Brooklyn resident is seeking 25,000 signatures in hopes of re-entering the U.S. Shyne, who converted to Judaism while in prison, is asking for the visa on the basis of good behavior and community service since his conviction.

Some one let Shyne back in the U.S.A. so he can get a decent haircut.

Good luck homie.
